Team News – Kolkata Knight Riders
Andre Russell, Robin Uthappa, and Nitish Rana managed to score 48, 67 and 63 respectively in the lately played game against KXIP and would be expected to put up similar performances in the much-coveted duel against the DC at their home turf.
The spin trio of Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, and Sunil Narine would hold the key for KKR if they are to bag a triumph in the coming feud. Along with the aforementioned, the pace duo of Lockie Ferguson and Prasidh Krishna would have to be backed up a little for KKR to restrict the Delhi Capitals to a paltry total.
Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted XI
Team News – Delhi Capitals
Delhi Capitals would be heavily banking onto the trio of Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan to put up a majestic total on the scoreboard.
In case the aforementioned trio falters in carrying out the assigned duties, the pressure of ensuring the same would fall onto the shoulders of skipper Shreyas Iyer and Colin Ingram who’d be wishing to belt in some crucial numbers in the forthcoming feud.
Although Kagiso Rabada and Keemo Paul rendered economic spells in the game against CSK, it was Amit Mishra whose spin prowess managed to send two well-set batsmen back to the pavilion end.
Ishant Sharma and Axar Patel had laid impressionable performances as well in the game against CSK and would be hoping to replicate a similar show in the game against Karthik’s men.
